Hi Folks,

Just today I knew after checking You Tube about a re make of this famous 1984 movie Red Dawn, although this time focused in an USA invasion from Asia.

When I saw the trailer the first I thought was 'Fortress America'! It seems curious that such a topic of an invasion against America did not die after the Cold War was over.

According to the trailer the movie will hit the theaters by Thanksgiving time, and although am not a movie fan, will make an exception and watch it. Seems good and full of action.

The topic hasnt died because the problems havent died. Russia may no longer be a Cold War threat. But China is shaping up to be a major problem one way or another.

Such a problem that because of their funding, the new film went back and scrubbed out all China references and changed the villains to North Koreans.

Yeah. China has been doing that lately. Ether protesting Chinese depictions in certain movies, or banning them. And you dont want sales blocked to a large country.

Though in the case of banning 2012. I think maybee they had the right idea there for once. :whistle:

Years back it would have been Russia protesting this or that movie showing them as the villains. Which they on topic enough, did for Amerika and Red Dawn.

Some things change, some things change only in the place names...

I can't feel excited about this film because I'm worried it'll devolve into some postmodern deconstructionist message about how America is wrong, and asian socialism is right.

I know that's not the point but I'm pretty sure the final five wasn't the point of the original Battelstar Galactica either.

I'll be surprised if it retains more than the title and general premise past the "US invaded - Teens fight back"...

I think it did die, which is why this movie has been struggling to get released for so long. There was an Australian movie recently called, Tomorrow, When the War Began, which is close to how I expect this remake to turn out. It's a terrible teen film, more Dawson's Creek than Red Dawn.

How lame, a remake for one then they change if from China to N. Korea so not to "offend" the movie market there. Pathetic = Hollywood and those who support remakes.
